Proverbs 19

LXX 1 NIV 1 Better the poor whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse. LXX 2 NIV 2 Desire without knowledge is not good— how much more will hasty feet miss the way! LXX 3 The folly of a man spoils his ways: and he blames God in his heart. NIV 3 A person’s own folly leads to their ruin, yet their heart rages against the LORD. LXX 4 Wealth acquires many friends; but the poor is deserted even of the friend he has. NIV 4 Wealth attracts many friends, but even the closest friend of the poor person deserts them. LXX 5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that accuses unjustly shall not escape. NIV 5 A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will not go free. LXX 6 Many court the favour of kings; but every bad man becomes a reproach to man. NIV 6 Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of one who gives gifts. LXX 7 Every one who hates poor brother shall also be far from friendship. Good understanding will draw near to them that know it, and a sensible man will find it. He that does much harm perfects mischief; and he that used provoking words shall not escape. NIV 7 The poor are shunned by all their relatives— how much more do their friends avoid them! Though the poor pursue them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found. LXX 8 He that procures wisdom loves himself; and he that keeps wisdom shall find good. NIV 8 The one who gets wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper. LXX 9 A false witness shall not be unpunished; and whosoever shall kindle mischief shall perish by it. NIV 9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will perish. LXX 10 Delight does not suit a fool, nor if a servant should begin to rule with haughtiness. NIV 10 It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury— how much worse for a slave to rule over princes! LXX 11 A merciful man is long-suffering; and his triumph overtakes transgressors. NIV 11 A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense. LXX 12 The threatening of a king is like the roaring of a lion; but as dew on the grass, so is his favour. NIV 12 A king’s rage is like the roar of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. LXX 13 A foolish son is a disgrace to his father: vows of the hire of a harlot are not pure. NIV 13 A foolish child is a father’s ruin, and a quarrelsome wife is like the constant dripping of a leaky roof. LXX 14 Fathers divide house and substance to children: but a wife is suited to a man by the Lord. NIV 14 Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD. LXX 15 Cowardice possesses the effeminate ; and the soul of the sluggard shall hunger. NIV 15 Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless go hungry. LXX 16 He that keeps the commandment keeps his own soul; but he that despises his ways shall perish. NIV 16 Whoever keeps commandments keeps their life, but whoever shows contempt for their ways will die. LXX 17 He that has pity on the poor lends to the Lord; and he will recompense to him according to his gift. NIV 17 Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done. LXX 18 Chasten thy son, for so he shall be hopeful; and be not exalted in thy soul to haughtiness. NIV 18 Discipline your children, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to their death. LXX 19 A malicious man shall be severely punished, and if he commit injury, he shall also lose his life. NIV 19 A hot-tempered person must pay the penalty; rescue them, and you will have to do it again. LXX 20 Hear, son, the instruction of thy father, that thou mayest be wise at thy latter end. NIV 20 Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. LXX 21 many thoughts in a man's heart; but the counsel of the Lord abides for ever. NIV 21 Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails. LXX 22 Mercy is a fruit to a man: and a poor man is better than a rich liar. NIV 22 What a person desires is unfailing love ; better to be poor than a liar. LXX 23 The fear of the Lord is life to a man: and he shall lodge without fear in places where knowledge is not seen. NIV 23 The fear of the LORD leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble. LXX 24 He that unjustly hides his hands in his bosom, will not even them up to his mouth. NIV 24 A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth! LXX 25 When a pestilent character is scourged, a simple man is made wiser: and if thou reprove a wise man, he will understand discretion. NIV 25 Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke the discerning, and they will gain knowledge. LXX 26 He that dishonours his father, and drives away his mother, shall be disgraced and shall be exposed to reproach. NIV 26 Whoever robs their father and drives out their mother is a child who brings shame and disgrace. LXX 27 A son who ceases to attend to the instruction of a father will cherish evil designs. NIV 27 Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge. LXX 28 He that becomes surety for a foolish child will despise the ordinance: and the mouth of ungodly men shall drink down judgment. NIV 28 A corrupt witness mocks at justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil. LXX 29 Scourges are preparing for the intemperate, and punishments likewise for fools. NIV 29 Penalties are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
